Seems like Clinton and Bibi have forgotten that under international law each and every settlement built in the occupied territories and in East Jerusalem is illegal. But, of course, neither the U.S. or Israel support international law unless it is directed against a country they don't support. In any event this is a win-win for Israel. They talk for 3 months while agreeing to nothing that would require them to give up any land. The Palestinians reject the nothing that is offered. The talks collapse and Israel not only gets back to building but gets billions in military aid and protection in the UN. Israel wins. The US loses - and so do the Palestinians and any chance for peace.
